FOREWORD

All DarkWare was spewed forth upon the VST scene during 2005
by the experimental electronica musician
Jack Dark.


If you want to be Jack's friend, go here.

DarkWare products were produced from June'05 till December'05. The first public DarkWare release was El Fuego, the last public Darkware release was Glitch Jockey (arguably The Nightmare Machine could be considered the final release). DarkWare products were featured in a variety of electronic music software magazines (Computer Music, Future Music, DTMM, etc.), and quickly amassed a cult following. However, after nearly 30 DarkWare releases, Jack got tired of producing freeware VST. Thusly in January '06, Jack ended DarkWare permanently so he could start selling commercial VST called NOVUZEIT.
